« Part 4: Rail ends mortised for hardware Part 5 of Bunk Beds: XL Twin over Queen; Cherry and Walnut series Part 6: A mistake and a fix »

I milled 16 legs, 8 of each length, and one spare each. I marked them earlier in sets and face orientation, but now it gets real critical to pay attention for the other mortises.

I used the Jet benchtop mortiser for this—1/2 inch
